    Choosing an AC/DC will allow for more welding options should you find it easy to become proficient with SMAW. As for name brand- Both that you have mentioned have good reputations. Don’t forget about Sears- easy credit then you’ll be stick welding sooner. What about Harbor Freight from reading the threads from there stuff might provide a cheaper option? Good luck with the SMAW it will be faster than TIG and the bonus is you can still weld with your fan blowing on you during the hot days of summer.

    To be honest i picked up that same machine from the store and returned it without even using it because it was to cheapo. It doesnt have amp settings or a foot pedal ect. I would check into a century if you looking for cheap and durable.

    Jesus,

    Reading through this thread I was beginning to think that somehow wires got crossed and we were receiving some 12 year old's instant messages.

    I'm not the grammar police, but, are we not teaching english in the schools anymore?

    going with any of the main brands will get you a decent welder that will likely have parts available for a wile. the only diference will be the feel of the arc some are softer then others esab is said to have a crisp arc ??
    if you are fond of the blue welders get one. i wnet Miller because i knew it was a brand i could count on and it was top quality. got my MM135 & my plasma cutter threw them, ben realy happy with both of many years now. had to get a TA-185 insted of a Dyn200 just due to $$. i'm a hobby welder and the dyn was just too much $$.
    i did however reserch the TA-185 thurowly and fallowed it on the diferent forems for about 3 years befor going with it.many have it and are happy with almost no reports of problems. for a hobby guy the $1750 i spent on it was tuff to get but better than the $2800 needed for the Dyn.

    so get what you can aford that still a good maker and you will be fine.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com
    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.
